Maybe because it sounds a bit punchier than the SBD, and the vocals definitely sound like they're coming out of speakers. The quality's almost clean enough to be a broadcast rather than an AUD.
Good as it is, I wish the taper had found a more central spot so the band would be in fuller stereo...

I haven't listened to the soundboard so that couldn't have colored my judgement, but it just sounds a little bit off to me, and saying that it sounds like a recording off of the radio is the best way that I can describe it. Maybe he was too close to the stage and he was picking up the stage monitors and missing most of the PA speakers? Or did they even have stage monitors back then?
